Even in countries with a War Powers Act, they are pretty useless in practice, except for the opposition to use against the government in debate. They don't stop war. Despite the great contributions Britain has made to modern democracy, Britain is not actually a democracy; the representatives of the people don't get a say on everything. Maybe that should change, but that's for the people to decide.
